Banana Cookies

Banana Cookies

I had three ripe bananas going to waste on my counter so i thought i’d look up a recipe to use them up. Well, i didn’t want to make Banana Bread so I came across this interesting recipe for a Banana Cookie. It turned out like a chewy granola bar, so it was soft and not very "cookie" like but still a good healthy snack. You can throw in whatever you want! I didn’t have any walnuts but I highly recommend throwing some kind of nut in there for a crunch and texture, otherwise its all soft. Here is more or less what i made it with…


* 3 ripe bananas, mashed
* 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
* 1 cup mixture of raisins, craisins (or other dried fruit)
* 1/4 cup chocolate chips
* 1 apple, diced
* 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped (or other nut)
* 1/4 cup of peanut butter
* 1/4 cup of sugar (or honey)
* 1 T wheat germ
* 1/4 c apple sauce
* 1 T vegetable oil
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves – to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Stir in rest of ingredients. Mix well, and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly brown.
